The last has definitely not been heard in the controversial red wedding dress that made news in December last year. An aggrieved bride, Lawrentta Adesuwa Sawyer, on January 1st this year, called out designer, Maryam Elisha of Rikato by Me, for giving her wedding reception dress to actress Mercy Aigbe to use for her 40th birthday shoot. The bride in her post online said she gave Maryam the red fabric to make her wedding reception dress in December 2017 and that Maryam failed to deliver the dress to her on the date they agreed. She recognised her dress on Mercy Aigbe and immediately called out Maryam.
It became an internet sensation with many Nigerians calling on her to sue Maraym. Well, it appears she is taking the legal step as her lawyers have written to Maryam demanding a compensation from her. Maryam in a post she shared in the first week, apologised to the aggrieved bride online and added that the bride had refused to pick up her calls.
Mercy this week reacted to the controvery the dress has generated. In a statement she posted on her IG page, the actress says she has contacted her lawyers to look into the matter.
